IIT Madras and University of Birmingham launch Joint Masters in Sustainable Energy Systems

BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND / CHENNAI, INDIA, 10th May 2024: The University of Birmingham and the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) are launching a new Joint Masters programme in Sustainable Energy Systems.

The Institutions have opened applications for this new course.

According to a press release from IIT Madras, students will study in both Chennai and Birmingham before receiving a single degree awarded jointly by both universities. They will also carry out a substantial individual project within internationally recognised research groups, giving them an opportunity to apply their knowledge to real-world challenges.

The University of Birmingham has a long and esteemed history in energy research and education, from the development of the UK’s first publicly accessible hydrogen refuelling station and boat to the development of large-scale energy storage, cold-chain technology in Africa, and large-scale facilities for nuclear energy applications.

The Birmingham Energy Institute (BEI) has operated for almost 15 years. It was one of the first attempts to provide greater cohesion and identity for multi-disciplinary energy research within a UK university.

The programme offers flexibility to students to conclude the programme in either Birmingham or IIT Madras. The programme will begin with students beginning their studies at IIT Madras and completing a short industrial placement.

Students then have the option of two pathways:

Option 1 – Study in the UK for 12 months, including a research project in Birmingham

Option 2 – Study in the UK for six months, then return to IIT Madras to complete the programme and carry out a research project at IIT Madras.

The applications will be available from 6th May 2024, and the offer letters are scheduled to be sent out from 26th June 2024. Interested students can apply through the following link: https://ge.iitm.ac.in/uob/sustainable-energy-systems/
